A Floating Pink Flower Landscape

(please click on the image for a sharper, higher resolution version)

These brilliant pink flowers caught the sun on a small lake in Kananaskis while I was waiting for the heron to leave its perch to fish.  The water suggested an Impressionist painting while the detail in the flowers provided sharp contrast to the dark pastels.

    I have never seen tiny flowers like that in the water. Are they lily buds? The watery background is just stunning. It almost looks like it its reflecting fall colors.

    • Hi Sandy,

      I’m not sure what kind of flowers these are. They were floating in the deepest part of the lake, probably 40′ deep. I agree they could be lily buds but I haven’t hunted them down online to verify.

      Cheers,

      Chris
